Leaves you Desperately wanting more....

As a long time reader of the "Jayne Castle" pen name of Ms. Krentz, this particular book has certainly left me wanting more.
When I saw this set of 4 books on the Audible site, I was excited to make their purchase, expecting that a character with the last name Jones, would provide an entertaining read, as all of Ms. Krentz's other novels have.
This story is lackluster, dragging at times, the romance almost non-existent.
The narrator reads well, but can not seem to give her character's voices any depth or emotion.
The only saving grace on the purchase of these books was that I got them on sale.

Middling Romance/Mystery

This story and performance were middle of the road, seeming more like a movie of the week than a cute or clever book. The overwrought emotion in Guinevere often reminded me of a Loretta Young B movie rather than a smart and sassy modern business woman. The plot wasn't quite obvious, but the clues telegraphed the conclusion far ahead of the heroine's comprehension of what they meant. I did like it that the professional was actually professional enough to figure it out ahead of her though.

This book wasn't bad, but it wasn't engaging enough to make me want to buy the next in the series--there are way too many better stories out there to invest my credits in.
